This is Sadie

This is Sadie

This is Sadie. And yesterday this sweet girl had run out of food. An injury caused her Mom to miss some work, meaning the next paycheck was still weeks away. But Sadie was out of food now. And that’s when her Mom called The Pongo Fund. Except Sadie and her Mom were nearly 100 miles away.

The Pongo Fund Pet Food Bank has provided more than 4 million meals to date, helping feed tens of thousands of animals during these toughest of times. Keeping them safe at home with their families and out of the shelters. But yesterday none of the previous 4 million meals mattered, because Sadie was hungry now.

We quickly crafted a plan to get food to Sadie. Although this is not how we typically do things, what mattered now was making sure this sweet girl had food to eat. The plan came together quickly and in a matter of hours Sadie had her food.  Just like that. It’s not magic, it’s caring. And it’s one of the driving forces behind The Pongo Fund.

Yesterday it worked for Sadie and her Mom, just as it has for tens of thousands of others. Many of them outside of our home base in Portland, Oregon. Because when we get the call, we always try to help. Saving lives. Keeping families together. Reducing shelter populations. Spay and Neuter. Emergency vet care. We are The Pongo Fund.

As Gandhi said: “You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result. “

And yesterday the results were just what we had hoped for.

Sit. Stay. Eat. Live.
